Burr F. Jones
by Mr. Mongan
The measure of a man is to be found in the hearts of his friends. Those
who know and love him, who cherish the same ideals and respect the
same virtues can best understand the heart of him they call friend. And
this, not in the sense of an appraisal, but rather with the warm-hearted
gratitude that flows from the recognition that here is a man.
All too often the self-effacing and self-denying qualities that are
essential to true magnanimity obscure or conceal the real stature of a man,
and it is not until the angel of death has swept away the nonessentials
that true worth and dignity stand forth. For true achievement is not to
be measured by material progress nor necessarily by any of the concomi-
tants of materiality.
Man's worth is of his spirit.
Look, therefore, into your own hearts to find his kindly nature, his
sympathy; search your minds to find the quick intelligence, the ready
response, the directing energy which informed his nature and was trans-
mitted to you by his example. Look into the eyes of the children and you
will see the friendliness with which he looked upon them. For now that
he is gone where else on this earth can we find him ?
Those of us who worked with Mr. Jones, those of us who worked —
as we all must — for the children, under his guidance, will miss him.
The days as they pass will remind us of his smile, his gentle manner,
his warm hand-clasp, his softspoken, heartening words. And whatever of
sadness those memories may bring they will also bring the courage and
the firm faith that emanated from him as he met his daily duties. From
school to school, with teachers or with pupils, in his office, at committee
meetings, in all his goings-out and comings-in, he shouldered more than
his share of the problems that beset us all in trying to teach the young.
Doggedly he set himself to work for the betterment of our schools that our
children might have a chance at a better life. Patiently he listened to our
troubles and bore with our complaints. And from him came no complaints
— although his heart must often have been sore. He had to face his share
of defeats and disappointments, and dismay must often have dogged his
footsteps and invaded his thought. Yet somehow he found a way to go
on — and to go forward. This last year of his illness ean teach us all much of
what makes for grandeur' in human character. * .
Yet he was not paragon, no inhuman embodiment of perfection —
aloof, austere. He wore his faults as becomingly as his Virtues, and in
humility tried to make up for his- shortcomings. Thece was no ppetense
about him, no "pose." He was — openly — what he was; and like most
of us, wished, and worked, that h§ might be better. He was too Jfbnest
to attempt to impress by reason of his position and authority, to© modest
to put himself forward for public praise, too fair-minded to throw his
shadow over Jellow-workers.
His light should long illumine our lives.
THE EDITORS' CORNER
They lie in the corner all tattered and worn.
The color is faded; the leather is torn.
But with these old slippers I never shall part.
The mem'ries they bring back are close to my heart.
For these are the slippers that I wore that night,
The night that I danced 'neath the gleaming spotlight.
I can see it before me, the stage all aglow;
The audience expectant; the house lights turned low.
I knew that my entrance was then very near,
For out of the silence came music so clear.
The curtain then parted, I made my debut —
There was joy in my heart, I ne'er before knew.
I sit expectant all alone,
Thoughts intent on the telephone.
He said he'd call me on this day.
I wonder what he'll have to say!
Suppose that he will never call,
That I won't hear from him at all.
But let me tell you I won't cry
O'er him who's left me high and dry.
I'll find myself another man.
You bet your life I surely can!
A man who will be true to me,
As kind and faithful as can be.
But wait, is that the phone I hear?
Hello, is that you Steve, my dear?
Was I worried Why not at all.
Of course I knew that you would call!
WHISPER OF WIND
The wild wind howls with fury
As snowflakes leap about;
Whirling, darting, twirling,
They approach the ground with doubt.
Of crystal, spectral hue,
They dance before ice-laden trees,
Then slowly, smoothly, wholly,
They glide to the ground with ease.
Class of '55
O Whisper of Wind in a narrow street,
Who can know your secret sweet?
Who can remember that April is fleet?
That December is lusty and long?
Who can remember that April is gone?
Distant vales of misty green,
Will you come again
O Whisper of Wind in a narrow street?

BEST GIRL CITIZEN
Each year high school seniors throughout the
United States are asked by the National Society
of Daughters of the American Revolution to
choose from their class a girl who has proved
herself to be their Best Girl Citizen. This year
we have selected, on the basis of character, abil-
ity, and service, Joyce Contente.
Joyce has been unusually active during her
three years of high school. A highest honor stu-
dent, she is a member of the National Honor
Society and Honor Group. As Editor-in-chief of
the Pilgrim, Joyce has worked diligently this year.
She is an active member of the Press Club, S.A.S.,
Glee Club, Octette, Sunsetters, and Dramatic
Club. For three years she has served as a 10^ a
week collector and has been a drum-majorette.
Joyce was also chosen in her junior year to attend
In recognition of Joyce's ability, her classmates
have also chosen her as the Most Likely to Suc-
ceed in the class. It is, therefore, with great pride
that the Class of 1953 presents Joyce Contente as
its best girl citizen.

Pursuit of Peace
Through deepening mist of troubled times
Our future looks obscure;
)Ve pray that (}od will guide our steps
And mafce us ever sure
Of hope which we ourselves have voiced:
That peace may long endure.
rk pray our years have been well spent ,
And knowledge we have gained
Mall lead us on to j^now, in time,
What still is unexplained;
How war and chaos, stress and strife
May one day be restrained.
The ground is tilled, the seeds are sown,
Our task has been assigned;
And now We strive to reach that time ,
With hopeful heart and mind ,
When the Harvest of the Years will bring

We, the Class of '53,
Have made exciting history
Since we entered Plymouth High
Three years ago. How time does fly!
As Sophomores we were not stunned
By Record Hop and Jimmy Fund.
We feel we had the best of hops.
In Science Fair our mates were tops.
In North Atlantic, sports, and such
The Sophomores never lost their touch.
It soon came time to end the year,
And we selected girls to cheer.
Vacation days were warm and bright,
Though summer seemed like overnight.
September came, the nights were cool.
And we were Juniors, back in school.
Then in the fall of '51,
The fund for Palsy was begun.
The high school band gave us a chance
To view a concert, have a dance.
In Science Fair and basketball,
Our mates again were best of all.
The Glee Club girls all went to sing
With Mr. Fiedler, Symphony King.
We had a Stardust Promenade;
For Honor Society we worked hard.
We saw Resort Town end the year.
At last, vacation days were here.
Ah, yes, those lovely summer days,
To bask beneath the sun's bright rays,
To play, to swim in water cool.
But now, we must go back to school.
At last, at last! We're Seniors now.
To work our hardest is our vow;
For we're to be a busy class
With jobs for every lad and lass.
Our first affair, the Last Chance Dance,
The sale of tickets in advance,
A million other things to do,
With college boards and homework, too.
Class officers we have to choose —
With Phil to lead us, we can't lose!
Class Poem to write and our Class Song -
Then our Jam Session came along.
We plan Commencement and Class Night.
Excitement now has reached its height!
We have a motto and a gift.
And Freak Day gives us quite a lift.
So many mem'ries to take away,
So many things we want to say,
But now's the time to bid good-bye
And close the doors of Plymouth High.

I was on a plane bound for New York from Paris when the idea came.
It had been ten years since we graduated from high school. Why not have
In New York, I caught a plane for Plymouth, and was met at the
airport by Donald Coombs, Mayor of Plymouth. He thought that my
idea was great, and suggested that I see Danny Beaton, millionaire marine
insurance tycoon, about it. Parked in front of the Beaton Buiding were
two Caddy convertibles, which Donald said belonged to that brilliant
team of accountants, Marilyn Clarke and Constance Hadaway.
I was admitted to Danny's office by Sally Eldridge, his private sec-
retary. Danny was a little dubious about a reunion, however, as he said
that the members of the class were scattered from Berlin to Tokyo. It
was then that I decided to fly around the world and see the class myself.
First, however, I had an engagement to keep with the Plymouth
PT.A. The annual national gathering was being held in Plymouth, and
I had been asked to lecture on Parisian fashions. On my way through
town, Francis Vancini, owner of the hot rod of the year, zoomed past me
in his new Jag. As I lectured that afternoon, I realized that there could
almost be a reunion in the P.T.A. Donna Balboni, Wanda Burgess, Pat
Carmichael, Pat Carr, Doris Jones, Cleta LaRocque, Connie Jennings, Joan
Lexner, Janet Linde, Lois Stringer, and Eleanor Travers had all come,
some from all over the country. After the meeting, someone mentioned
the new high school that was being built, and a few of us drove over to
see it. David Nichols, successful surveyor, was there talking with Eliza-
beth Anderson, Dean of Women at the high school. I was surprised to
see Robert Viella and Erwin Roberson, co-owners of a national string of
garages, talking with Elizabeth and Dave. They wondered if I had seen
Allan Cotti, who had just become Vice-President of the Cordage Company.
I left Plymouth, and drove to that buzzing, new metropolis, Carver.
At the town hall, I was met by Selectman, Alan Roby, who had been talk-
ing with Richard Arponen and Arnold Jokenin, men of affairs about town.
Alan said that I could probably find a few of the class members in Boston.
Danny had mentioned that Ted Swenson was at Harvard, and Alan agreed
that he was the man to see. I phoned Ted to see when he would be free,
and I recognized the long distance operator's voice as Marie MacMahon's.
Ted was free, and I started for Boston. I turned on the car radio, and was
astonished to hear radio commentator, Dave Keay, announce that Sec-
retary of State, Patricia Baker, was flying to Washington for a special
conference with the President.
At Harvard, I met Ted, professor of observation and reflection. He
told me that Catherine Alves, expert psychologist, was also at Harvard.
We found Adele Vadini, Dr. of English at Radcliffe, and headed for Fen-
way Park, The Red Sox were having a winning year, and no wonder,
for at Fenway Park, we found Bruce Mason, Red Sox Manager, Erving
Wall, homerun slugger, and Robert Gavoni, rookie of the year. The Red
Sox won, of course, and after the game we ate at Durgin Park where we
saw Pat Smiley, the first girl to play pro baseball, and Prilly Tilson,
whose paintings on exhibit in the Museum of Fine Arts had been an out-
standing success. They told us that Virginia Smith, superintendent of the
Little Wanderer's Home, and Jeane Soares, advertising director at Jor-
dan's, had just left.
As long as I would be in New York a while before flying to London,
where Joan Carton, heiress and world traveller had last been seen, I
found Roberta Randall there, who told me that she was having a big
party in her penthouse apartment that night. She and Bob Buckingham
were currently starring in that musical smash-hit, "A Guy for a Gal."
The party was already roaring when I arrived. Ronald Cavicchi, play-
boy, was standing in the middle of the room, surrounded by beautiful
women. Among them were Margaret Reudiger, Miss America, Claire
Baratta, one of the ten best-dressed U. S. women, and Karrylle Rovatti,
the hairdresser who introduced the "shaggy dog" haircut that swept the
country. I could see Notre Dame football coach, Phil Carletti, explaining
his winning plays to commercial artist, George Lewis. Joyce Busi, the
famous Broadway actress, was being dramatic, and Bob Buckingham was
mimicking her, encouraged by Bev Tassinari and Dick Sturtevant, top
efficiency experts, and Susan Bailey, Dr. of fashion at Cornell. Suddenly,
Shirley Garuti, buyer for Saks Fifth Avenue, screamed and pointed to
the T. V. set. Diane Brenner, T. V. comic, was presenting her weekly,
hour-long program. Our class certainly had met with success in New York,
and when "Tut" mentioned that two or three classmates were in Wash-
ington, I decided to see what momentous events were happening there.
As I stepped from the plane, I felt that I was being watched, but it
was only F. B. I. agents, Dennis Longtin and Charlie Paine. With them
was Ronald Nogueira, criminal lawyer, who invited me to accompany
them to a reception being given by Ambassador to Turkey, Dave Santos.
Ronald's private secretaries, Marilia Corvelo andJeanne Dries, came along
also. The first person I noticed at the reception was Bob Pillsbury, Presi-
dent of G. M. C, and a probable choice for our next secretary of defense.
Talking with him was Ben Cohen, leading DuPont chemist, and Herbert
Hoover's assistant secretary, Lucille Alsapiedi. Lucille was about to leave
for her vacation in Palm Beach, and asked me to go with her. There we
were treated to a dizzy round of swimming pools, parties, and night spots
by those madcap play girls. Jane Dempsey, Bette Pimental and Marcia
However, I had the world to cover, and I left Sunny Florida for foggy
London. My pilot over the Atlantic Ocean was none other than Don
Weaver. We landed safely in London, and I found Linny Priestley, New
York Times foreign correspondent. We met Jack Corbett, U. S. Ambas-
sador to England and Janet McCosh, London buyer for Bonwit Teller in
New York. They had seen Joan Carton a few weeks before, but thought
that she was somewhere in Argentina at this time
The following day I took a boat across the channel, and was amazed
to find myself crossing with Bill Harney, who had won a trip to Europe on
a quiz program.
In Paris, I found that the new IL N. Building had made fantastic pro-
gress. And no wonder! With architect, Curtis Tibbetts, electrician, Rich-
ard Moore, and master plumber, Joe Ferreira working on it, progress was
a sure thing. The toasted dancer, Joyce Contente, was featured at the Fol-
lies Bergere, and as I watched the show that evening, I talked with the
United Nations interpreter, Sheila Clough, and the famous designer, Nancy
Morse. They had just returned from Berlin, where a number of our boys
in the Air Force were stationed.
Of course, Berlin was my next stop. There I found two famous Ameri-
can entertainers, vocalist, Jan Davis, and that great tenor man, Robert
Wager, doing a benefit show for the servicemen. In the jammed hall, I
spotted Karl Brofski, Dave Mello, Steven Sands, and Frederick Silva.
Frances Dunham and Barbara Halunen were both captains in the Wom-
an's Air Force, and they told me that they had been shipped over from a
Texas base where Isabelle Silvia, Phyllis Northrup, Ronald Cotti, Wil-
liam Gilbert, Robert Manfredi, and that daredevil jet test pilot, Joseph
Fontes, were stationed.
From Berlin, I flew to Rome where I saw Joyce Barlow, Latin trans-
lator, and the surrealist painter, Frank Nunes. They told me that I had
just missed Ginny Colas, U. S. Ambassador to Greece, who had recently
left for Athens.
During a quick stop in Africa, I was presented with an exotic leopard
skin by big game hunter, Larry Mansfield. At his suggestion, I flew to
Tokyo, where I found that the Pilgrims had landed ! Mario Crociati, fam-
ous bandleader, was there doing shows for the G. I.'s. Arthur Freeland,
former Mayor of Manomet, Wallace Ruas, Vincent Zupperoli, and Rich-
ard Davis, all potential four star generals, were there serving Uncle Sam.
Alfred Vieira, who was doing radio broadcasting off Red Chnia, was among
them. Army nurse, Betty Northrup, had just left on a hospital plane headed
for the United States.
I was homeward bound, too, and in Seattle I found engineers, Karl
Anderson and Al Tedeschi, who were building a government dam on the
Columbia River. Al would probably be a congressman after the next
election, and Karl had recently refused an offer to coach basketball at
Washington State. The Navy had taken over Seattle, and the Plymouth
boys had taken over the Navy. Admiral Robert Alberghini and Seamen
George Barrett, Paul Bates, and Frederick Sherman were found in a night
club which featured that "gone" musician, William Zucchelli.
The following day, in Los Angeles, I saw the movie Lover starring
Shirley Ferreira and Ray Longhi. It was hot, and I went to the beach
where I found Dexter DeBrusk, Hollywood Producer, his secretaries, Jan-
ice Cristani, Diantha Gould, and Lillian Mansfield, and Francis Rogers,
who retired at twenty. Nancy Owens had just persuaded Dexter that she
should have the lead in his forth-coming picture, The Vamp. Of course,
the conversation veered to the current sensation, America's Einstein, Leo
Cadorette, who was doing brilliant work on the H-bomb at Los Alamos.
The flight back to New York was almost an Old Home Day. Dr. Carlin
and his secretary, Elaine Barboza, were flying to a convention in Chicago.
Robert Simmons, author of The Quiet Man, and Joanne Fillebrown, fam-
ous poetess, were seated across the table. The weather was bad, and as we
landed in Chicago, our flight ended in a not-too-serious accident, thanks to
the quick thinking of hostesses Sally Korth and Joan Fortini. We were
rushed to the Cecilia Jacobs Hospital for a routine checkup, where nurse
Caroline Dittmar was on duty.
In New York once more, I went to a secretaries' convention where I
lectured and afterwards saw Sally Mazilli, Marion McGuiness, Carol Proc-
tor, Cynthia Smith, and Ruth Torrence. They were all New York career
girls, and as they drove off in their Cadillacs, I wondered why I had chosen
Paris, but after all, for a top fashion retailer, Paris is the world !

Back to school! We welcomed the new sophomores at an S.A.S. spon-
sored "Get Together Dance" early in the month.
Soon after with his "Revelations of Wrestling," Mr. Bertrand Shurt-
liffe amused us all — except perhaps the unlucky football players on whom
Mr. Shurtliffe demonstrated his holds!
The student body enjoyed an interesting lec-
ture entitled "Citizenship" given by the Direc-
tor of Civic Education in Massachusetts.
Halloween found us dancing in the gymna-
sium to the music of Joe Mondeaux at the S.A.S.'s
second successful dance of the year.
The senior class made their social debut al
a dance held in the gymnasium on the 21st, which
featured the "Hill Billy and Fillies." The dance
was a "Last Chance" for the P. H. S. females to
catch their favorite males be-
for Leap Year was over, and
they were happy to announce
that it was a great success!

National Honor Society was presented
this month. Short speeches were given

ANDREE STRAKER MEMORIAL FUND
The student body voted again to undertake some charitable project
this year as they have done for the past few years. The organization which
the students decided to contribute to was the Mary Hayes MacArthur
Memorial Foundation. The students called this project the Andree Stra-
ker Memorial Fund in memoriam to Andree Straker, a former student of
Plymouth High School who recently died of polio.
In March delegates of the Polio Fund collectors, with Miss Downey,
their advisor, Mr. Welch, Superintendent of Plymouth schools, Mr. Mon-
gan, our Principal, and Mr. and Mrs. Straker, visited the Mary Hayes Mac-
Arthur Memorial Hospital. Mr. Straker made the formal presentation of
$500 to Helen Hayes, who graciously received the group and took them on
a tour around the hospital. The check for $500 was half of the money
which the students contributed to the Fund. Later in the year another
$500 was sent to Miss Hayes.

The varied activities of the Student Activities Society of Plymouth
High School are organized by the Student Council. The officers of the
council are: Mario Crociati, President; John Vancini, Vice-President; Lois
Kierstead, Secretary; and Joanne Goodwin, Treasurer.
The Student Activities Society project undertaken for the school year
1952-1953 was the collection of $1,000 on a "Penny a Day" basis, to be given
in memory of Andree Straker to the Mary McArthur Polio Center in Wel-
lesley, Mass. The chairman of this project was Lucille Alsapiedi.
The Student Council has presented many interesting and varied assem-
blies to the school throughout the year. The Council has also sponsored
several enjoyable dances. Details of these assemblies and dances have
been given on the page of school news.
The school held an election for the President of the United States,
the Governor of Massachusetts, and the U. S. Senator from Massachusetts
on November 4, which was arranged by the Student Council. The coun-
cil also made the plans for the students to view the inauguration on tele-
vision on January 20.

Twice a month on Monday afternoons the two-year-old Biology Sci-
ence Seminar can be seen discussing anything from racoons to molds.
Sponsored by Mr. Young, the Seminar provides a means for members to
further their interest and knowledge of the biological sciences, to con-
tribute to the study of biology in Plymouth High School, and to assist
members in purusing biological research. Limited to approximately ten
members, each meeting is arranged and conducted by a chairman. The
chairman calls for several reviews of scientific articles and a biography of
some great scientist, living or dead. This year the group had as one of its
guests Dr. Reed of Boston University, who talked with them and presented
some new ideas for science projects. Mr. Donald Welch, the superintendent
of the Plymouth schools, was also a guest. Having seen many project
demonstrations by biology students, the Science Seminar acted as the gen-
eral committee for the Science Fair,
At the sixth Annual Science Fair, 165 exhibits were displayed by mem-
bers of the Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Radio Classes. The Grand
Awards were won by Marie Hasz 1st, Carolyn Carpenter 2nd, and Pat-

The Plymouth High School Press Club, under the direction of Miss

under the Senior High School Notes of the Old Colony Memorial. And it
appears there following no little labor on the part of the members. Every
week of the school year, the P.H.S. "roving reporters" may be seen scurry-
ing around the corridors interviewing teachers, investigating sports events,
writing up assemblies and social affairs, and, in general, compiling any
bits of school information which may be of interest to the public. Then,

On September 27 Plymouth High
opened its footbaball season against
the high-spirited Bridgewater eleven.
Playing under a new coach, Bridge-
water smashed to its first victory in
three seasons. Plymouth fumbled
three times within their own 30-yard
line; and these fumbles proved
costly, as Bridgewater recovered and
turned them into touchdowns. Final
score: Bridgewater 20 — Plymouth 6.
A desperate pass with but twelve
seconds left gave Rockland a 18-14
victory over Plymouth High at
Standish Avenue Field on Saturday,
Oct. 4, 1952. Plymouth led 7-6 when
Rockland drove over for a score with
two minutes to play. After the kick-
off, Plymouth came back to score on
three plays to lead 14-12. Then came
the long pass which gave Rockland
the contest. It was a sad day for
Plymouth football fans.
Plymouth High won its first ball
game of the year on Oct. 11 when
they turned back Middleboro High
at Middleboro. Plymouth scored
first in the second period after a
march of 83 yards. At the half P.H.S.
led 12-0. The Blue and White scored
again as the third period opened. At
this point, Middleboro came to life
and scored its lone T. D. Plymouth
scored again in the fourth period and
went on to win 24-7.
A strong Whitman team was met
by Plymouth on Oct. 18 at Whitman.
Coach Spath really wanted this game
with the "Red Devils from the
North." Each team scored in the first
period, but Whitman drove over in
the second period for a 13-7 halftime
lead. Plymouth took a 14-13 lead in
Ihe third quarter. The last Whitman
threat ended on the goal line when
P.H.S. recovered a fumble. Plym-
outh went on to score a third T. D.
and win 30-13.
Plymouth High won its first home
game of the year when it turned back
Abington High 22-0 on Oct. 25. The
Plymouth grid machine scored twice
in the second period after a rather
slow start. Plymouth added a safety
and another touchdown in the third
period. The lone Abington threat
came in the fourth period on the
Plymouth goal line, but the Blue and
White stopped the threat and took
possession as the whistle sounded.
In a strictly defensive contest,
Plymouth played host to Hingham on
Nov. 1. Penalties and fumbles
turned back each threat during the
first half, which ended in a scoreless
tie. Strong defences controlled play
in the third period- Midway through
the final period Plymouth attempted
a pass, half thrown and half blocked.
A Hingham defensive player took the
ball in mid air, and raced over for
a T. D. This break gave Hingham a

Barnstable High invaded Plymouth on Nov. 8 at Standish Avenue,
The Cape Cod team released a terrific offensive attack and had a 14-1
lead at halftime. The only Plymouth offensive came in the third when
they marched for a score. Barnstable was not to be denied victory as
they went on to score twice more and hold Plymouth in check. Final
score: Barnstable 27 — Plymouth 6.
Plymouth played its last game on November 15 at New Bedford
against "Voke." Plymouth started slow and at half time were behind
13-6. After the second half kickoff, Plymouth marched to the "Voke"
28 and here fumbled. This proved to be the turning point as New Bedford
scored twice more, P.H.S. scored in vain in the fourth quarter. Final
score: New Bedford 26 — Plymouth 12.

With five "greenies" and three experienced girls, the Plymouth cheer-
leaders stepped out in snappy new uniforms this fall to cheer our teams
to victory. With the first few games went the nervousness of the new,
and our girls were soon performing at a top rate. Under captain Elaine
Barboza, seniors Lucille Alsapiedi and Shirley Ferreira, and juniors Karin
Engstrom, Elizabeth Bobb, Jeanette Brenner, Shirley Roncarati, and Syl-
via Sheehan introduced some snappy new cheers which the student body
of P.H.S. quickly picked up. Basketball season had the girls out in the
familiar blue jumpers to aid our high scoring team. Our new director,
Miss Knight, an avid supporter of girls' sports, had the girls cheering for
the girls' hockey and basketball games. The attendance immediately went
All in all the girls have made themselves definite assets to P.H.S. and
we are all waiting to see them next year.
A small but speedy Whitman quin-
tet turned back the Plymouth High
hoopsters with a score of 56-48 at
Whitman on January 16. Plymouth
to a halftime lead of 24-21. In the
second half, Whitman began to score
steadily. With a half a minute to
play, Plymouth trailed 50-48. At-
tempting to gain possession of the
ball, Plymouth committed several
fouls. As the sixth straight Whitman
foul shot dropped through the hoop,
the buzzer sounded.
Plymouth High turned on the
steam on January 20 by turning back
Middleboro High 67-53 at Memorial
Hall. Both teams played airtight
ball the first half, with Plymouth on
top by only a 30-29 score. In the
second half, however, Plymouth
dropped the ball through the hoop
from all angles and romped on to
Unable to overcome an early Fair-
haven lead, Plymouth High bowed to
a strong Fairhaven team on January
23. Finding it difficult to get used
to the small court, Plymouth fell
behind 31 - 17 after the quarter.
Through the second, third, and most
of the fourth periods, Plymouth
matched the speedy sailors. How-
ever, foul shots boosted the score in
the last three minutes. The final
score was Fairhaven 80, Plymouth
Shooting from the floor was ter-
rific as Plymouth trounced Rockland
on January 27 at Rockland High
School. The Blue and White team led
at the half 35-12. At the end of the
third period with Plymouth ahead 53-
23, Coach Nunez replaced his start-
ing five, and even this team coasted
home by outscoring Rockland 21-12
in the last quarter.
Plymouth fought hard but was un-
able to catch a fine working Hing-
ham team at the Hingham Armory
on January 30. Midway in the sec-
ond quarter, Hingham took a ten
point lead but lost it minutes later.
Plymouth trailed 42-40 at the half.
P.H.S. remained two or three points
behind through, and, in the final two
minutes, Hingham pulled away. The
final score was Hingham 79, Plym-
Again under the reins of Coach
Hank Rogers, Plymouth High downed
Abington at Memorial Hall. Plym-
outh took an early twelve point lead,
but in the second half Abington cut
the gap to five points. Plymouth
then put on a burst of speed and
coasted to the final whistle. Score:
Plymouth 64, Abington 53.
Plymouth High got revenge for an
early-season setback from Whitman
by trouncing the "Red Raiders" at
Memorial Hall on February 6. At the
half Plymouth led 30-28 in what ap-
peared to be a tight contest; but in
period three, Whitman fell far behind
and was unable to get back in the
game. Plymouth 65, Whitman 50 was
the final score.

The Blue and White came from behind to turn back Middleboro in a
game on February 10 in the small Middleboro gym. Plymouth led at the
end of the first period, but at the half they were ten points down 43-32.
In the third period, Plymouth scoring went wild as they overtook and
passed the Orange and Black. The fourth period was slow with Plymouth
remaining on top. The game ended with a score of 85 to 75.
Wareham High overcame a first period ten point deficit to defeat
Plymouth High 56-53 at the Wareham gym. Plymouth made a fast start
with a 19-9 in the first period, but had fallen slightly behind by the half,
the score being Wareham 27, Plymouth 24. At the end of the third period,
the score was deadlocked at 43 all. In the last quarter, Wareham showed
great strength. Then Plymouth came back with a last minute rally, but
the scoring fell just short of victory.
It was victory for Plymouth
High from the opening gun over
Rockland at Memorial Hall on the
17th of February. The Blue and
White led 28-16 at the half. Plym-
outh really piled up points in the
last two quarters. As the final buz-
zer sounded, Plymouth had a total
of 64 points to Rockland's 36.
Fairhaven High proved too strong
for Plymouth High at Memorial Hall
on February 20, as they topped the
Blue and White with a score of 55-
45. Fairhaven jumped off to a 15-6
first period lead. Plymouth came
back and was only three points down
at the half, Plymouth still trailed
at the three-quarter mark by only
two points. In the last period Fair-
haven, then leading by one point,
put a freeze on the ball, which en-
abled them to increase their lead
with foul shots till the end of the
Plymouth High closed its regular
basketball season with a very im-
pressive 66-61 win over Hingham at
Memorial Hall on February 24. The
best performance of the entire sea-
son was turned in by Plymouth. The
team trailed in the first quarter 17-
13, but reached a 28-28 tie at half-
time. At the three-quarter mark, it
was 46-44 in favor of P. H. S. The
home towners remained ahead
throughout the rest of the game.
In the opening round of the South
Shore Tournament, Plymouth turned
back a winless Oliver Ames five 65-42
at Bridgewater. Plymouth to a first
period lead, but the Oliver Ames
team of Northeastern High had a
strong second period and cut the
lead to 30-28. Plymouth really
opened up in the third quarter, go-
ing ahead 49-31. Most of the last
period was played by the Plymouth
reserves, who still outscored the
weak Oliver Ames quintet.
Playing one of the finest jgames of
the season, Plymouth swept past
Canton High in the quarter finals of
the South Shore Tournament. After
a rocky first quarter, the Blue and
White team began to work together
and moved into a 25-19 halftime lead.
Plymouth slowed down a little in
period three, but managed to main-
tain a 37-31 lead. The Plymouth boys
gave an excellent performance and
came out on top 55-42.
In the semi-final round of the
South Shore Conference, Plymouth
moved past a favored North Attle-
boro five 68-49 at the Bridgewater
gym. The first quarter was very
slow with Plymouth leading 11-8. The
roof fell in on North Attleboro in the
second period as P.H,S. outscored
them 27-6. to lead 38-14 at the half.
North played well in the third quar-

Plymouth High was far below par
in the finals of the South Shore Tour-
ney at Braintree on March 6, as they
bowed to Hingham High 69-46. The
first period was close with Hingham
on top 14-11, but at halftime Plym-
outh had fallen nine points behind
31-22. The Hingham quintet was red
hot in the second half, and they
turned the game into a rout. It was
a sad final for the Plymouth Five.

CROSS COUNTRY AT P. H. S.
Plymouth High's Cross Country team enjoyed one of its most success-
ful seasons this year, closing with a creditable record of four victories and
The Blue and White started off on the wrong foot on October 6 by
losing to Rockland High at Rockland in its first seasonal competition.
Plymouth's harriers, however, showed great promise, and better things
were anticipated on October 14, when Plymouth played host to Middle-
boro. It was a hard-fought battle all the way over the IVi mile course, and
Plymouth emerged victorious, 26 to 29.
Brockton came to Plymouth on October 17, and the Rogersmen, ham-
pered by injuries, bowed to the Shoetowners, 18 to 37. On the 20th of the
month the Blue and White journeyed to Middleboro, and won by the same
score the week before, 25 to 29.
Plymouth played host to Whitman on the 27th of October, and this
meet proved to be the most exciting contest of the year, with Plymouth
coming out on top, 26 to 27.
The date of the State Meet in Boston was November 1, and although
no Plymouth runner placed, several of our cross-country men participated
The Blue and White ended it regular season November 3 by defeating
Whitman High, 18 to 37, at Whitman.
On October 12, a small delegation of our lads traveled to Rockland for
the Annual District Meet, and two Shiretowners, Eddie Lopes and Sopho-
more flash Don Medara, placed in the first ten.
All in all, as noted above, this was a most successful season. The
admirable job of coaching Mr. Rogers turned in in his first year as coach,
and the fine spirit and sportmanship displayed by our harriers will long be
remembered at P. H. S.

I LIKE AMERICA BECAUSE-
I like America because of the things we take for granted, the little
things which we accept as part of our day-to-day living — those things,
to us as natural as breathing, the lack of which has smothered freedom in
some unhappy parts of the world.
We go to church. Catholic, Protestant, or Jew, Mohammedan, Bud-
dhist, or Mormon, we go without interference, without fear, as our con-
science dictates. Or we stay at home, unheeding and forgetful — but, go
or stay, in either case, the smooth flow of our lives goes on. We scarcely
give the privilege of attending church a thought.
We go to school. Cheerful and willing, or complaining and resisting,
we face our teachers each school day to learn or to loaf, our lives so
secure and peaceful that failure to get bid to "the Prom" can be a tragedy.
We accept our right to education so unthinkingly that often we rebel
against it, neglect it, waste it. The opportunities and inspirations, the
friendships, the ambitions, are all so closely woven into our lives that we
cannot imagine life without them.
We talk as we like and as we feel. Generally we talk too much and we're
not too well informed on what we say. And our talk is too often critical,
harshly critical, unkind. Whether we talk ("air our opinions") about base-
ball or movie stars, ward politician or President, no "thought" police
threaten us. We take to freedom of speech so naturally and freely that
we'd be lost without it.
We go where we please, when we please. Freedom of movement with-
out police permit, security measures, or travel orders is inbred in us. From
coast to coast, from Gulf to Canada, we roam at will without a thought of
registering at a police station or "showing our papers." Our policemen
are our guides and friends.
We can make friends. Unfettered by politics, economics, or religion
we make friends according to our living. No thought of money, social pres-
tige, or advantage concerns us. No fear of reprisals, no need for protection
from those in power has to be kept in mind. Friendship in our friendly
land is that — just friendship.
And so the little things become big, become the basic pattern of our
lives. If we could not take them for granted, our lives, our homes, and
nation would be under the shadow of suspicion and fear. I like America
because, little or big, these are the things that make our lives.
First prize winner

Boston Herald Essay Contest
(With Apologies to Shakespeare)
To pull it out or not. That is the question —
Whether 'tis better for the jaw to suffer
The stings and pains of an aching tooth
Ot to take steel against a host of troubles,
And, by extracting, end them? To pull — to tug?
No more: and by a pull to say we end
The toothache and the thousand natural ills
The jaw is heir to. 'Tis a cosummation
Devoutly to be wished! To pull — to tug!
To pull — perchance to break! Ay! there's the rub,
For in that tug what pains may come
When we have half pulled out the stubborn tooth,
Must give us pause. There's the respect
That makes of an aching tooth a calamity.
For who would bear the pangs and stings of pain,
The whole mouth's torture, the dentist's contumely,
The thought of hope deferred, kind sleep's delay.
Necessity for pity, and the spurns
The patient from the healthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
For a few dollars? Who would these fardels bear,
To groan and sink beneath the weight of pain —
But that the dread of something lodged within,
The pain extracted by the dentist's forceps.
No calm and carefree moment, — puzzle the mind,
And we choose to bear the ills and pains we have
Than go to others that may aid us.
The dentist can make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the grim thought of pain;
And many a person who seeks the dentist's door
For fear of suffering basely turns away,
Frightened at the name of a dentist
I'm dreaming of the summertime, of sailing and the sea;
And all the happy times that these things meant to me.
Long ago and far away I hardly knew that life could be
So full of gaiety and laughter, fanciful and free.
I hardly dared to dream about the parties on the beach,
And then I could not realize the joys within my reach.
And with the passing of each year, I still hope to return
To all those joyous, happy days for which I'll always yearn.
ON THE THRESHOLD
The future waits outside the door
Beyond our high schol days,
Which we now leave — prepared we are
To wend our separate ways.
When we open the doors of tomorrow
And leave it unlocked behind us,
We'll keep our motto in our hearts
To guide and to remind us
That what we gain of success in life
Can come because God is granting
Reward for deeds that are well done,
The harvest of our planting.
The siren song of travel
Is constantly sung to me;
It is sung by the mountains and valleys,
And sung by the deep, dark sea.
It comes to me in the dead of night,
It comes to me at dawn,
It comes to me in the afternoon
Always whispering, "Let's be gone."
I know not how to stop it,
I do not dare give in —
But, perhaps when I get older,
The spirit of travel will win.
In the heart of every girl
There lies a pure and precious pearl;
A gift of God bestowed at birth
To guide ther through her life on earth:
Her sense of duty.
At a very early age
Temptation looms to blot a page
In her life. She, so young in years,
Harbors wicked thoughts; yet fears
To fail her duty.
If she is weak, and lacks the pow'r
To struggle in her needy hour,
She will succumb, and go astray —
And then regret she lost the way
To heed her duty.
But, if she's strong and brave and true,
She will be good, and join the few
Who stand above the teeming crowd.
And shout with voices clear and loud,
"I've done my duty!"
THE GREAT CHANGE
I have a brother six years old
Of whom I should be fond;
But how can I at seventeen
Approve a miniature atom-bomb?
In our dwelling, for six long years
I have suffered this mighty-mouse.
The time has come to set the trap
And stop his rule of our house.
We talk, we scold, we punish.
We ask him to please remember
That, when the clock says 6:45,
Our house admits a new member.
This is the time of transformation,
He becomes a kind little boy;
From now to bedtime there will be peace, —
For this short time he's our greatest joy.
I've watched the waning tide depart
And looked upon the sea,
It seemed there was no beauty there, —
It brought no joy to me.
Within the sheltered harbor shores,
The ebb tide left behind
A scene of desolation grim.
No splendour could I find.
Expanse of mud and reed and rock,
A swamp of dismal brown, —
Where is the sky-blue water now,
Where wind and waves abound?
A quiet stillness fills the air,
The channel wanders through,
The white-washed gulls are hovering,
All wait for nature's cue.
The surging tide brings slowly in,
With secrets from the deep,
A blanket, shot with silver, for
The shallows while they sleep.
You cannot love the the ocean well,
All Plymouth vows 'tis true,
Until you know within your heart
You love the mud flats, too.

WITH APOLOGIES TO ABRAHAM LINCOLN
Forescore and quite a few year ago, the Latin language was brought
forth in Rome; conceived in exceptions and dedicated to confusing the
student. Now we are engaged in a great translation, testing whether one
pupil or any pupil so bored and so confused can long endure. We are met
in a lowly classroom of that language. We have come to learn a portion
of that language as a final effort of Miss Wilbur who has almost given her
life so that Latin might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we
should learn this. But in a larger sense, we cannot comprehend, we can-
not change, we cannot destroy this language. The Romans living and dead
have destroyed far above our power to add or detract.
Rome might little note nor long remember what I say here, but I hope
Miss Wilbur will soon forget what I do here. It is for the coming student,
rather, to be warned of this slave labor against which previous students
have so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to dig in to this work before
us that from these Romans we may take up a new interest in this lan-
guage so that all these Romans should not have thought up this language
in vain. That the Latin language shall have new birth under Miss Wilbur
and it shall not perish from the earth.
